Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh addressed the media and answered questions after the team's final practice that is open to the media before tomorrow's walk-through in advance of Friday night's pre-season game versus the Kansas City Chiefs at M&T Bank Stadium.
The video is on BaltimoreRavens.com, and in it Harbaugh gives an update on why Ray Lewis missed practice for the second consecutive day (personal family reasons) and that guard/tackle Marshal Yanda will not be playing in the game. Coach was complimentary on the technique of cornerback Cary Wiliams, who has looked real solid in camp thus far.
Harbaugh stated the starters would play well into the second quarter although some of the older veterans such as Ray and Ed Reed may be pulled earlier than the others. He also addressed that offensive coordinator Cam Cameron is giving QB Joe Flacco the leeway to change calls at the line of scrimmage based on the defensive formations.
He also confirmed that Oniel Cousins would be at right guard and rookie Jah /Reid would start at right tackle. He cautioned the media and wants the fans to know that the team will not be in mid-season form and will keep working on things.
